like a good response to offer our house, whatever they needed after the marathon. >> jim, as you can imagine, the details still emerging, a lot of people are are coming to grips with what happened. as i said, acceptance is the theme here as people try to make sense. people are really, really hurting, coming together and comforting each other. >> tony, from a security stand tell us more about what you're seeing there around you, you have a police zone, what are the police doing? has the security lessened over the day that you have been there? >> reporter: well, yeah, this morning they had about 12 blocks blocked off. we saw k-9s brought in, so we could assume they were trying to find other things around the building. i have to say we had over a thousand national guardsmen brought in from other states. we have multiple police, fbi, atfs, a lot of jurisdictions trying to assist, the fbi trying to figure out what is going on. a lot of street closures as you have mentioned. i have to tell you, we have police walking through the streets. there is a very big law enforcement presence here. >

suspect's trip back home in 2012. tracking that for us, in some really heated testimony today, cnn's jim acosta. jim? lay out the information for us. what's being said? what is the controversy? >> reporter: well, chris, you're absolutely right, lawmakers on capitol hill are trying to get to the bottom of what was known about the older suspect who is now dead, tamerlan tsarnaev, and this trip ta hat he took to rusa last year. law makes want to know why is it that tamerlan tsarnaev was able to make this trip in the first place. should he have been stopped before he went overseas? when overseas what did he do? what was he up to when he was over there? some of this is stemming from some of the conflicting stories, quite frankly, chris, from federal officials over tamerlan tsarnaev's status. senator lindsey graham, republican from south carolina, told reporters yesterday that tamerlan was on a no-fly list, that he was on some sort of terror watch list a federal law enforcement official has told cnn that is not the case. and senator charles grassley, graham's republican colleague in the senate

, ahead of the emancipation day parade. more on how the country is reacting. >> reporter: jim, the nation's capitol is home to all sorts of big public events and places. today was just a little different. from quiet moments at the korean war memorial, tourists at the nation's capitol were acutely aware regarding the bombing. but there was resolution not to give in to fear. >> reporter: any concerns after an event like yesterday? >> well, we were just a little bit concerned. some of our relatives from back home were calling us. it is such a sad thing that happened. and it is just awful. but like you said, you know, we go from day to day. >> reporter: it shocked some tourists when they shut down the lincoln memorial for a security sweep and security test. there was no security incident. and soon enough, the popular monument was opened again and tourists swarmed the famous steps. resolute here, too, that terror would not cancel their spirits. >> americans are not built that way. >> reporter: and the annual d.c. emancipation day parade swept down pennsylvania avenue. police and public safety
are in the nature of the bomb. >>> up next, abc's senior national correspondent jim avila, shows us just how far the blast from the bombs traveled. >> reporter: the killer bombs likely contained less than two pounds of common black powder explosive, says one of the nations leading ied experts. even leaving the characteristic white smoke. bombs designed to spread terror and death with a lethal blast of metal shrapnel. >> looks like he was out to kill and maim. >> reporter: hold it right there. here we see windows blown out here, but the buildings themselves are intact. what does that tell us about what this bomber wanted to do? >> that he did not want to take down the building. that wasn't his main target. it was to disrupt the marathon and kill people in that immediate area. >> reporter: houston says this is classic ied design, the kill zone from the blast, one to two yards. according to the accounts from the bomb's site, powerful enough to knock a runner off his feet ten yards away. and topple another man on his couch from the third floor of the building next door, 20 yards away. >> it looks li
of the bombings at the boston marathon. joining us now by phone is retired atf agent in charge jim cavenaugh. now with all the security precaution that's are put in place at events like these, why weren't these bombs detected? what went wrong? >> looks like the boston police swept the area with the bomb-sniffing dogs and bomb squad but they did not totally secure the area after they swept it. and that can be for a lot of reasons. issues, whether they suspected anything that would happen. a marathon is a very difficult thing to secure anyway just because of the length of the race and number of people. >> now we've since learned that the explosives were most likely pressure cooker bombs. how sophisticated are those bombs and what do they tell us if anything about the bomber? >> well, what's come out right is they're pressure cookers and ball bearings inside and circuit board. so we know it's electrically fused. one thing we know for sure is they're simple and they're very effective. the electrical fusing remains to be seen is that a cell phone circuit board or a timer? if it's a cell phone, the 12

in meteorologist chad myers and jim spellman. this flooding, widespread there. >> reporter: it's amazing how intense the rain was and how quickly some of these neighbors flooded. you mention almost seven inches of rain in 24 hours, they get three inches of rain on average in the month of april in the chicago area. too much for the ground to take. i'm on the edge of it, a foot from the deepest part. much worse inside the homes. i got a chance to go inside this home, there's a refrigerator and freezer bobbing, three or feet of water, but they could get another inch of rain here later today and into the evening. with the ground this saturated, that could be more flooding for these low-lying areas like elm hurst, john? >> more water they simply don't need, thanks, jim. >> chad myers, people there want to know when this is going to stop. tell us. >> it's been a tremendous amount of rain. i haven't seen training like this in a long time, but it does end tonight, brooke, to answer your question. it's like a train. think about a train on a train track, one car goes directly over where the other car

shrapnel designed to maim anyone standing by and jim avila has more. it's not hard to find out how to build one. >> reporter: it's not. investigators are learning more about the anatomy of the bombs and abc news confirming the common cooking appliance used in their construction was a midsize fager brand pressure cooker. unfortunately, the pot maker sells 50,000 a year of those in the united states. this is what remains of what investigators believe could be the crude but effective bomb used in boston. the american military knows them well. the pressure cooker bomb. homemade and designed to maim and kill. this video of military units detonating one in afghanistan posted on youtube. this one found on the internet from the streets of nepal. so common the department of defense handbook on spotting roadside bombs warns soldiers and marines to be on the lookout for that innocent pressure cooker and publications all over the internet teach the construction of a bomb made from mom's kitchen, why so popular? because pressure cookers seal so tightly and can be filled with nails and ball bearings and
